“The club has a lot of potential with several national champions already and we are planning to build on this and produce successful results at all levels.

“We are passionate about getting more people involved with diving as it is a fantastic and exhilarating sport for people of all ages.

“We run lessons for both children and adults and have free taster sessions so people can come and try it out.

“We are also on the lookout for any squad gymnasts, trampolinists or dancers who may already have some of the basic skills needed to excel as a diver.”
